GreenOwl Mobile is pleased to announce the availability of a significantly updated version of it popular TrafficAlert app. Version 2.0 of TrafficAlert – Toronto is available for iPhone today.
The app sports a new cleaner look with an emphasis on Drive Mode for safety and battery and data optimization. Users can now register with Twitter and Facebook accounts as well as email for better route management, social features and offline traffic updates. GreenOwl has made some preliminary improvements in the route recording and management function, with bigger changes to come in the near future.
The most noticeable change in this version is the new “black grille” look and Drive Mode screen. This screen eliminates the distraction of the map allowing the driver to focus on the road. The screen will automatically switch from Map Mode to Drive Mode (this can be disabled in Settings), offering the user simple options to report traffic, select and record routes, and play the last alert. Drive Mode also offers an easy way to adjust the volume of alerts.
Finally GreenOwl has added some important tweaks under the hood, including the ability to better handle different Bluetooth setups (in Settings) and more intuitive menus.
In the coming weeks, these changes will be rolled out to the Android version of TrafficAlert as well as media partner versions of the app including CP24 Traffic Alert, CTV News Cottage Traffic, CTV Morning Live Traffic, Rock 95 Traffic and KoolFM Traffic. More great features will be added to the TrafficAlert platform soon.
